NASA PM Challenge – Day 2
Day two starts with a room that is not as filled as yesterday. Might be the case that some attendees hat a longer night catching up with each other or because of the more or less disappointing key notes from day one.
How ever the keynotes have been better than yesterday and also used the time that was given instead of running short.
However, today two main speakers will take the stage.
1) Mark A. Langley, the CEO of PMI (Project Management Institute), tailing about Strategic Talent Management and the gap in talented Project Management people
2) Robert Lightfoot (his name is his principal), a Top Shot at NASA, that still has to paint room at home :-), talking about his leadership principals
What I have to mention again, both speakers start with a story and have plenty of stories in their pack to get across in their 30 min timeframe.
For the ones that are not as familiar with the storytelling concept, her it is in a nutshell:
Both speakers are stars in their story telling capabilities, but lets focus on the topics and the key learnings
Mark Langley, Strategic Talent Management
Any news for you ?
Make sure you work with PMI as an organization to find the right strategy to be ready for what is coming.
Make sure you work with PMI as an individual to skill yourself and surround yourself with others to be identified as somebody filling the GAP.
Lets get into the next one.
Robert Lightfoot (his name is his principal), a Top Shot at NASA, that still has to paint room at home :-), talking about his leadership principals
Here again, story telling in perfection and very engaging. He is a leader, at least he is coming across like one.
What makes a leader
Leadership tyrannies (don’t let them suck the life out of you)
Than he talked about his leadership principales:
So what am I taking out of day two
A great conference with additional impulses and to get a better feeling how organizations like NASA manage their projects. Unfortunately their is no event planned for next year.
So see you sometime.
